QA Testing (International)

Some International QA misses

Software Testing is very important to every organization. You don't want customers to have a bad experience and you don't want your organization to look bad.

Here are a couple of examples of where a bug slipped QA and made it into production:

Australia misspells 'responsibility' on 46M new $50 bank notes.

Turns out that the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) spelled "responsibility" as "responsibilty" on millions of the new yellow notes.

The RBA has confirmed that there was at least one typo on the note and will be fixed in the next printing. For now, 46-million banknotes will have the small misprinting.

FYI: The A$50 is one of the most popular notes that is circulated in Australia.
